Speechless Sunday - A Spring TX Chaste Tree/Bush!

The Chaste Tree - Spring TX

This Chaste Bush is in our back yard and at at the moment is drop dead gorgeous.  Now I have to be honest we had a hard winter and I was convinced that it was dead.  I tried to talk my husband in to taking it out but he said we should wait and see if it came back to life.  I'm glad he did not listen to me as it came back to life in a big way. 

The bush has an interesting history. It is considered to be native to Southern Europe and to the Mediterranean.  It mainly grew along riverbanks but today it is used in our back yard landscaping.  Anciant Greeks and Romans believed it kept it owner chaste, with his sexual passions under check.  It was also assumed that the tree was capable of warding off evil.  It also has a number of different herbal uses.  Personally we just think it is a pretty tree/bush! It is a popular landscaping Bush in the Houston area and it must like harder winters because they are particularly pretty this year.
